Greetings, Fellow Creatives! Today’s episode of the podcast is a bit of a clip show, but I think it will be very useful to longtime listeners as well as anyone new to Coffee with Creatives.
As many of you may know, I try to make a point of asking guests on Coffee with Creatives for actionable advice for anyone who is just starting out, or perhaps feeling stuck with any one project or in the career, or who is just generally on the look out for practices and tactics that might help them create and keep on creating.
That’s the goal of the show at large, and in this episode you’ll hear from some of my more popular guests in terms of:
One piece of advice they would offer to help you generate and realize your vision,
Getting your work made and/or seen,
Moving through fear,
The benefits of mindfulness,
And other important methods that go hand-in-hand with creating professionally.
If you enjoy this episode, here’s the full list — in order — of guests whose longer interviews are excerpted. I’ll be back in a few weeks with a new full-length interview.
After a bit of a break, Coffee with Creatives is back and ready to inspire you in 2016. The first episode of the new year is with Filmmaker Christina Raia, who I first met on Twitter and then in person when Multiverse screened at Indieworks in NYC.
Christina is a prolific filmmaker with an intense work ethic. In addition to discussing the path that led to her first feature film Summit, we also discuss:
The many ways in which an artist can be boxed-in, in career terms, and how to help make sure that doesn’t happen
How we as artists change during, after, and across projects
Why she doesn’t like waiting before moving on to a new film or series
The experience of wondering if her $20,000 feature (Summit) would collapse entirely, during every day of its two-week production period
Learning to be vulnerable, and how that can help you (and any team members working with you) to, for instance, stick things out in sub-zero temperatures
In regards to her web series, Kelsey, how to achieve distribution success by reaching out to your base, or core audience
Great talk, hard-working, generous filmmaker. Summit is available now. You can find out more about Christina and her work on her site. Happy Creating! More great guests coming soon! If you enjoy our talk, please share it on Twitter or on Facebook.
